“As the most iconic wedding destination in the world, the best love stories start in Las Vegas,” said Lynn Marie Goya, Clark County Clerk. “With endless possibilities, couples have been making their wedding dreams come true in Las Vegas for decades. Couples around the world are invited to celebrate their love stories with us at this wonderful 70th Anniversary Celebration.”
As part of the celebration, a vintage-Vegas style show and mass vow renewal ceremony will be broadcast around the world. The original production with theme song written by Dan Slider, “Las Vegas Will You Marry Me” will be hosted by Dennis Bono, recording artist and star of “The “Dennis Bono Show,” the weekly show which broadcasts world-wide from Michael Gaughan’s South Point Hotel, Casino & Spa in the Entertainment Capital of the World, Las Vegas.
